The Murder of Kenneth Duncan

An update on this shooting, reported earlier.

Off-duty Corrections officer shot to death outside Brooklyn home

NY Daily News 4/22/08

An off-duty Corrections officer was shot in the face and killed as he attempted to fend off robbers outside his Brooklyn home early Tuesday, police said.

Kenneth Duncan, 40, and a friend were tinkering with the officer's red motorcycle in the garage of his East Flatbush home when a group of men approached them about 3:15 a.m., police said.

The men began to argue with Duncan - and investigators and the jailer's family believe the assailants were trying to steal the motorcycle.

"He was working on his bike, the motorbike that he loved," said his sister Chichi Duncan outside the Brookdale Hospital emergency room. "It was a robbery, they shot him for his bike."
